Getting studious at the Sullivan Underground Mining Railway. SUMR hosted two geology tours last week. Retired geologist Paul Ransome, who recently donated an extensive collection of Sulivan Mine core samples to the Railway, was able to conduct two geology walking tours, one for Carolyn Kelly’s group from NAIT and for Dr. Jennifer Cuthbertson’s group from U of C.  Bill Roberts provided the underground mining experience for both tours. Guests Ted Sanders, Doug Leach and EK Chamber of Mines, Jason Jacob joined the U of C group and helped Paul with that tour.
